Reference Methods Guide: Using proximate analysis as the basis for NIR calibrations

The food and feed industry measures analytes for:

  • Quality control
  • Product development
  • Meeting industry standards
  • Declaration requirements
  • Ensuring compliance with regulations

There are agreed-upon reference methods for analyzing several analytes, known as proximate analysis. This guide describes a range of official fat and protein determination methods for:

  •  Meat
  •  Dairy
  •  Bakery
  •  Plant-based food

The results of analyses performed to official standards can be used for NIR calibrations. Once calibrated, NIR instruments can drastically streamline workflows by measuring analytes in seconds rather than hours.
